In my previous post, "How To AccessorEYES," I discussed using eyewear as a tool to add personality to your looks. I wear prescription lenses, and in my early days I wasn't a fan of wearing glasses. I have since learned to not only embrace my opticals, but my eyewear is now a carefully considered part of my wardrobe.
I own several pair of prescription glasses and due to my RX, they can be very costly, so I do the following to help alleviate the financial burden.
- I incorporate eyewear into my budget and treat it as an expense.
- My insurance allows me one new pair of prescription lenses per year, and a new pair of frames every other year, so I take advantage of those benefits religiously.
- I budget enough money in my Flexible Spending Account to cover expenses that exceed what my insurance covers.
- I get my eyes examined every year, and if my prescription changes only slightly, I will forego updating all my eyeglasses with the new prescription.
Now onto the good stuff. I've been lusting after these Alain Mikli frames for quite some time now. I purchased them from my friends over at Omega Optical.
